Believe and Achieve

Authors by Design, or “AbD” as known by its members, was founded on July 2005.

Our goal is to create a home for new and veteran authors.

AbD is a friendly, welcoming environment for all authors to learn through sharing knowledge and experiences. Every member’s opinion counts, it doesn’t matter if you’re an old or new member. Our forum grows and changes based on our members needs.

Whether you write novels, novellas, short stories, movie scripts, poetry, journals or blogs, in AbD you will find the place to express yourself. We have an extensive variety of topics in our forums sure to fit your interests. Our authors come from many genres, ensuring there’s a place for everyone.

We also have a strong focus on Private Critique Groups. The private critique groups and forums are members only. Posting your work in either the Critique Forum or a private group is not considered “prior publication”. They are members only and are not open to the public. To learn more, see Private Critique Groups.
